From the Publisher
This text authoritatively covers currently used techniques for determining the structure of organic and biological compounds--ideal for any practicing or future organic or biochemist. The fundamentals of all four principal spectroscopic methods are covered in depth, each by an experienced author who is a practicing expert in that area. The material is easy to grasp, beginning at the most elementary level and progressing to the level required for organic research. Highlights include the most thorough and current treatment of NMR available, ample problem material, and two new chapters devoted to multiple pulse and two-dimensional methods. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From the Back Cover
This book is the revision of a widely-respected book on spectroscopy. The book covers all four areas of organic spectroscopy including NMR, MS, electronic (including CD and optical rotary dispersion), and vibrational (which also includes Raman). The book is the most complete and comprehensive treatment on the subject. It covers currently used techniques for determining the structure of organic and biological compounds. It also has a strong emphasis on problem solving and is distinctly pedagogical. This book is ideal for any practicing or future organic or biochemist. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

In my opinion, there are no ideal books out there. Either the background/theory is inadequate (e.g., Silverstein), the tables are hardly useful (e.g., Pavia), or there aren't enough problems. On the other extreme are NMR-only books like Gunther's or Schlichter that are beyond the scope of the course. While I personally would like to see more tables than are present in Lambert's book, they are a good start and will do very well for many people.
The book includes very reasonable introductions to a great variety of techniques. The section on ionization in mass spec, for instance, has subsections on LD, SIMS, FAB, MALDI, ESI, TS, and APCI on top of the usual EI and CI methods. In the optical spectroscopy section, there are good introductions to CD and ORD. The chapter on 2D NMR is also much more extensive than typical for these books.
There are 35 "integrated problems" in the back of the book, but I might like to have seen more problems associated with each chapter.
I assign this book with confidence, supplementing it with some tables and home grown problems. As far as I'm concerned, it's the class of the current (1999) lot.
All in all, a frustrating experience.
